MyDVD and VideoWave


cb0373

Question

The objective was to create a compilation DVD video/movie using video extracted from existing DVDs. The video extracted well (with no help from EMC 9, I might add), and plays perfectly from the hard drive.

 

I used VideoWave to compile the video clips, trim them, and set transitions. VideoWave hung, crashed, lagged - you name it - repeatedly. The performance grew worse as I continued to use it, and restarting did not help. I then used Disc Copier to "re-capture" the already extracted video clips, but trimmed them in the process, thereby lightening the load on VideoWave. This seemed to help a little - at least I spent less time in VideoWave.

 

Upon completion of the video editing, I sent the project to MyDVD. MyDVD also hung, crashed, etc. Nevertheless, I eventually got my chapters completed, menus together and was ready to burn the DVD. So far, everything looked good when previewed.

 

The output was awful. The picture shakes, the clarity doesn't compare to the original at all, and the color is faded. I've checked all the settings that I could find. I tried it again on a fresh boot with no other applications running and virus software disabled, with no improvement.

 

I'm running XP Prof with an Intel P4 C2D E6600, a 320GB HD, 4GB RAM and a GeForce 7600 GT video card.

 

Incidentally, a "straight DVD copy" - extracting it to the hard drive first and using Disc Copier worked with no apparent issues - the output quality seemed fine.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Dude... I feel your pain. Nice rig though.

 

Under your project settings, there is an option for burning either "interlaced" or "progressive". Check which one is checked and select the other one.

 

No promises but the two different settings do make a difference.
